This article is in continuation with the previous publication. The article reviews various psychopharmacological factors which determine the ultimate success of therapy, even when the drug administered does not have any specific efficacy in conditions under treatment. The importance of usually ignored variables of the psychophysiological state of an individual undergoing therapy, and its relevance to placebo genesis is discussed.
